I have coached T-Ball and Youth Baseball the past six years and will be coaching my second year of youth lacrosse with Lawrence Lacrosse this 2019 season.

Coach Joe Byrne : Youth 8U, 11U
My name is Joe Byrne. I am originally from Michigan where I played Football and Baseball in high school. I moved to Milwaukee Wisconsin for college and played baseball. It was while I was in Wisconsin that I started coaching. While working at an ice rink, they were in need of youth coaches. I coached the developmental hockey, and later moved to various levels up to the high school club team. I also coached JV and Varsity football and womens softball. I also met my beautiful wife while in Wisconsin. We have two boys, Jayson and Brayden. I thought I was done coaching but again as my boys began playing sports I was asked to help again. I currently help with youth football, baseball, basketball, soccer and lacrosse. No one in my family before Jayson had ever played lacrosse. We were lucky enough to find the Lawrence Lacrosse Club and we have fallen in love!! Sports have been a huge part of my life. Sports have taught me dedication, hardwork, teamwork, and to never give up. I hope to pass these traits on to whomever I am lucky enough to coach.
